At least three separate lenses that broke at the exact same spot. Three lenses which were assembled with screws that aren't long enough to thread completely into the mounting bosses, and whiich broke right at the end of those screws.

No, three lenses doesn't prove anything, but these images are troubling. And denial won't solve any problems, either.

Then there's the dichotomy between Oly's claims of "all metallic construction" and the reality of an all plastic lens with a thin metal shell over the plastic.

Oh boy.....here we go AGAIN.....
